Generator

Postby mrdibs » Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:56 am

Now that she's running again, I need to attend to the lesser issues. First up is the generator. Ammeter shows discharge with the lights on, so I know the meter is good. Wiring is all new and all was working perfectly when I first put it all back together. The generator had good brushes etc when I took it apart to paint, but I admit it's probably original equipment.

So - how do I isolate the problem to either A - the voltage regulator, or B - the generator? Is there a good way to bench test them?

Next. I have the sickle bar attached and functional, but I'm certain it's missing some peices and parts. Does anyone have close-ups of a complete working sicklebar, or parts manual with diagrams? It also has a couple of busted blades and one busted tooth. Blades look rivited, so how do I replace?

Generator issue first,did you polarize the regulator?, if so ground the field terminal on the generator while running, if it charges the generator is working

Pages 9-11 discuss cutting bar maintenance. There might be someone close to you that has a Johnson Sickle Servicer. It facilitates both removal of blades and also sets the rivets. If you just have a few to do, you can do them as shown in the link.

Since you painted, make sure you have good grounds on the regulator mount and on the generator. Here is a link to Farmall
bob's trouble shooting chart for generators with regulators.

Thanks guys! Sickle bar pics are perfect. I'm missing essentially all of the safety gear/guards and a few things are bent in ways they should not be.
